[sual004a] : daigoro - william herdmans cinema


Published February 6, 2004


Here Daigoro marks his first release not only for us here at SUAL, but also his debut netrelease on any label. Hailing from Perth, Scotland, Daigoro - or Dave Fyans as his mother still calls him - takes his influence from sources as diverse as prog rock, ambient electronica, dub and traditional Scottish folk music to create glacial drones and bubbling ambient soundscapes. On this release, Daigoro pays homage to his great grandfather, William Herdman, who wrote and played piano music for silent movies. In his own words, Daigoro's album recalls the "crackly old sepia life" that would have punctuated his relative's career. He also sees the Scottish folk influence in his music as part of his own cultural identity. Traditional Celtic music is built around the drone of the bagpipes, and although this album thankfully features no bagpipes, Daigoro's careful analysis of the music's structures and idiosyncracies ensures that the music's heritage lives on.

Daigoro forms one half of Somniscope (www.somniscope.mm403.com), who create audio-visual artwork which is also definitely worth checking out. On his own, Daigoro is also featured on the forthcoming "Some Paths Lead Back Again [hpll:010]" compilation on Highpoint Lowlife Records (www.highpointlowlife.com). Along with this, Daigoro's track 'Wrong' (featuring the vocal talent of Synesthesia) was the winner of August's The Slsk, and hence will be featured on the forthcoming Soulseek Records release.


Dedicated to the memory of Simon Mitchell 1979-2004
